Naum Gabo style

Calvin was given a project at college where he had to take the style of an artist and adapt it to something he created. He chose Naum Gabo (I hadn't heard of him either) who does unusual figures with card/wood. Clever lad.

Samples of a few of Calvin's new glazes.

Now we have the kiln, Calvin has been trying out some of the different glazes he has. Here's three unusual ones he has.

Giraffe is finished!

Calvin has just completed his first commission done completely from start to finish within our house! Normally we have to get the firing in the kiln done else where but now we've got a wee kiln in the garage he's done the whole lot in the house. Great stuff!

We now just need to hope the person who commissioned it will like it.

It's a dogs' life

Calvin was asked to make two dogs (an old golden retriever and a black lab) from photographs the owner had. Another happy customer.
